High-quality Tiling and Slating
across hertfordshire and surrounding towns
Tiling and Slating
Tiles are the most common form of covering for pitched roofs. They are laid at an angle, starting from the eaves and working up to the apex of the roof.
Each row of tiles or slates is secured firmly to a batten – normally a thin wooden beam that spans the length of the roof. These battens help to spread the weight of the tiles, as well as providing a guide point for our roofers. Every subsequent row of slates overlaps the one preceding it, until they reach the top of the roof. The freshly-tiled roof is then capped for added protection. The overall effect is that any rain, snow, or other water will cascade down the side of the roof, being diverted down towards the guttering.
Here at Watford Roofing, we have been performing tiling and slating work across Hertfordshire for over sixty years. Few other companies in the county can match us for experience, quality, or customer service. Whether we fit an entire roof-worth of tiles, or repair a single missing slate, 100% customer satisfaction is guaranteed. This applies to all clients, including those in Watford, Rickmansworth, Amersham, Pinner, Northwood, Stanmore, Radlett, and beyond.
Professional Tiling and Slating Services
As a well-established firm of professional roofers, we have much to offer in the way of tiling and slating. Here is what you can expect from us.
High-quality Tiles and Slates
As we do with every roofing job, we source the very best in tiles and slates for our customers across Hertfordshire and beyond. We work closely with local suppliers whom we trust to deliver materials that meet our own high standards and those of our customers. We can provide a great variety of ceramic tiles and natural slates.
The Right Support
Tiling and slating a roof from scratch requires a solid framework on which to work. Whether we are doing it as part of a new roof installation or replacing your existing roof tiles, we make sure the right support is in place. We check all roof timbers, joists, and battens beforehand, replacing them where necessary to ensure secure tiling.
Tile Repointing and Nail Corrosion
Sometimes your tiles and slates might be fine, but the materials holding them in place have deteriorated. This normally involves mortar for ceramic tiles and nails for natural slates. At Watford Roofing, we can repoint the mortar on your tiles and replace any corroded nails. This is a cost-effective solution for the budget-conscious customer.
Leadwork and Sealants
As well as the tiles and slates themselves, our team of roofers can also assist with repairing and replacing leadwork, flashing, and other sealants. These are normally applied at the joints where one part of the roof meets with a wall, window, chimney stack, or other extrusion. We complete all leadwork to perfection, preventing the possibility of leaks.
Tile and Slate Repairs
As well as installing new rows of tiles and slates, we also repair and replace broken and missing roof shingles. There are plenty of ways for the occasional tile or slate to get damaged or dislodged. Our trained roofers will identify the cause and ensure that it has been rectified before replacing the tile itself.
